    Hello Nun, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    Here a couple of things to check while you are signed in to an administrator account to hopefully help.

    1) UAC is set to at least the default level. If you have UAC set to "Never notify", then standard users are just denied and do not get prompted by UAC for an administrator's password.
    2) If you used the download in step 2 of OPTION TWO of the tutorial below, then this is a side effect from it. You could do step 3 in OPITON TWO to undo it if this is what you did.

    Are you able to sign out and sign in to an administrator account to do so?

    In that case, you may need to reinstall Windows.
